Spring Into Fundraiser Update: Rancho Sienna Helps Fund Shady Canopy at WCRAS
Whether you have two legs or four, it’s nice to find a shady spot to get out of the hot summer sun.
Thanks in part to a $1,400 donation, the Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter will build its fourth shade canopy for dogs to rest and play under. This new canopy will be located in the shelter’s middle play yard, where there is currently no shade for the animals while outside.
The donation was raised by the first annual Rancho Rescue Run this spring, which celebrated the opening of Big View Trail and the coming of the new dog park in Rancho Sienna. The Rancho Sienna family would like to thank everyone who made a contribution to this wonderful cause.
“We have already constructed four canopies in other areas at the shelter, and they are one of the dogs' favorite places to go,” said Misty Valenta, community programs coordinator for WCRAS.
Other improvements made possible in part by the Rancho Rescue Run donation include minor tweaks that will help make the play yard more secure and functional, Valenta said.
Rancho Sienna hopes to make an additional donation to WCRAS at the grand opening event for the community’s new dog park on September 9. WCRAS will be on hand with adoptable dogs and information about volunteering at the shelter, so be sure to make it out and support their efforts.
If you're interested in continuing to support WCRAS, about one month after the dog park grand opening, WCRAS will host its annual Fur Ball gala on October 22, to help raise funds for a much-needed expansion to the shelter facility.
The Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter is the only shelter solely devoted to lost and abandoned animals in Round Rock, Cedar Park, Hutto, Leander and Williamson County.
